Two men, believed to be Indians, died in Australia’s Perth city after a fight over money while a third Indian was being questioned over their deaths, police said Friday. Detective Inspector David Bryson said the deaths were the result of an argument over money. He said a badly injured man in his 20s reached a St John Ambulance depot at Morley in Perth’s east at about 4 a.m. Friday. The man said that another man was lying injured in a nearby street. “That male has been injured and he’s alerted them to the fact there’s another male injured not too far away...,” Australian news agency AAP quoted Bryson as saying. The second man’s body was found on Crimea Street, where both men were believed to be living with friends. The man who met the ambulance officers was taken to hospital but he died. Bryson said: “Essentially the information that we’ve got is there has been a dispute about finances. Essentially that’s it - there’s been a dispute about money and things have obviously escalated and it’s obviously taken a life of its own from there.” A police spokeswoman said that they believed the three men involved in the altercation were Indians. A man aged in his 20s, who is also understood to be an Indian national, was being questioned over the deaths of the two men, which police are treating as a double homicide, the media report said.
